Justinian the Mighty Posted July 19, 2010 Report Share Posted July 19, 2010 In preparation for his son's baptism Justinian penned a short invitation to send to his guests all over the world. Immediately after he finished writing he had it sent off the Foreign Ministry to be revised, translated, printed and sent to hundreds of potential guests. Slavorussia's ambassadors worldwide would personally deliver the letters to the world's leaders. [quote]Majesties and Excellencies, esteemed diplomats and ambassadors, Recently my family was blessed by the birth of my son and heir to the throne. This is, of course a very joyous occasion in our lives, especially when weighed against a number of recent setbacks. One finds that spreading their happiness with others helps to make a grand occasion like this many times better. Therefore on behalf of the Empress and myself, I wish to invite you to Peterhof, our summer home and seaside getaway, to join us at the Tsesarevich’s baptism. The palace staff are busily working and all accommodations are being made for your arrival. We hope that you will join us and share in our good fortunes. Signed, Justinian[/quote] Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
